The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
"The Case of the Texas Cowgirl"
Originally aired November 8, 1954.

Minnie O'Malley, a cowgirl in a travelling rodeo, seeks help from Sherlock Holmes--to remove a dead body from her hotel room! Strangely, Holmes seems to be more than happy to comply. Suspects range from a Blackfoot Indian, the owner of the rodeo Bison Jack, and a meek salesman across the hall.

Easily the most ridiculous episode of the entire series.

Subject: Classic TV - A must for Holmes Fans

this site introduced me to Ronald Howard as Sherlock Holmes and I shall be forever grateful. After watching the eight episodes available here, I treated myself to all 37 episodes made on a DVD collection!!

The TV series was never shown in the UK until a few years ago when a satellite channel called Bonanza continually repeated 8 episodes on a daily basis before going bust, They have recently reappeared as the Young@heart channel, repeating the same 8 episodes.

Howard is excellent as Holmes and his Dr Watson is almost as funny as Nigel Bruce was with Basil Rathbone. Archie Duncan (Little John from the 50s British Robin Hood TV series) plays a brilliant, if somewhat grumpy, Inspector Lestrade. The story lines are a little stilted and very dated but all in all, these shows are television history at its best.

Five Stars!!!!!

Subject: Hilarious!
This episode is hilarious. I was expecting some mediocre movie, a way to spend 30 minues, and I was pleasantly surprised to find brilliant humor here. A humor which survived 50 years with dignity.
